An Okami Figure That Looks Like it Was Made From The Skin of a Cloud

I've seen some Okami statues in my time, but I've never seen one made using a technique called "needle felting", which I'm going to imagine involves flying to 20,000 feet, scooping some cloud into a basket then coming back down and knitting with it.

The piece was made by artist Piquipauparro, stands around 8" tall and is made almost entirely from wool (aside from a metal "skeleton").
